The government has sent out a notification saying that all categories of visitors will be charged an additional amount. Until now, the entry to Taj Mahal cost Rs 40 for domestic visitors and those from SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries, and Rs 600 for other foreign visitors.

Now the visitors will have to pay Rs 200 if they wish to enter the main mausoleum. Earlier, nothing extra was charged to enter the mausoleum.
